  • The global semiconductor shortage that affects HID card readers and credentials (card) shortages (125KHZ) will continue well into 2023

  • Facial recognition is gaining some momentum but still mostly implemented in high security access areas at this point in time.

Parking Control

Rethinking Inground Loops

The parking industry has forever used copper loop wire installed by saw cutting 1 inch into an asphalt or concrete roadway, with wires connecting to a vehicle detector to sense a vehicle passing over the loop. This practice works for detecting vehicles and holding gates open while a vehicle is present or closing gates automatically after a vehicle passes over, but it requires cutting into roadways and has other esthetic and maintenance drawbacks.

While infrared or microwave sensors are not exactly new to the parking industry, they have become very good at detecting cars AND people, while loops can only sense the metal in cars. As a result, trust in these types of sensors is growing and they're becoming a popular alternative.

Customized Wraps on In-Lane Parking Equipment help our customers with consistent brand advertising and messaging to their customers at the perimeter of their properties. Gate systems and revenue control in the parking lot or garage are the first location where the customer experience occurs. Working equipment is obviously the most important thing and a familiar look might also make a good first impression!

Customer Spotlight

Toll Brothers Rivercrest Community

Managed by CAMCO

CAMCO is a locally based Community Management Company that has been in business for over 45 years, managing hundreds of communities in the area. i2 Security Solutions provides and maintains security systems at several CAMCO managed properties.


Recently, we were tasked with repairing, upgrading, and replacing certain components of this Community’s perimeter and building security systems equipment (supplied by another integrator) to get their systems back to working order. We successfully completed the repairs (where applicable), and replaced or upgraded their Parking Access, Video Surveillance, Club House Security/Intrusion & Telephone Entry systems. All systems are now in working order and integration between systems makes the resident and visitor experience a good one.

Our work and ability to meet the customers timelines for systems crossover has led to two additional service opportunities at other Camco communities.
